Moreover, the court admitted the appeals filed by Apriq Romindustries, Alro Slatina and Elsid SA Titu against the preliminary receivables tables, and also sent these cases for a retrial to the Bucharest Court.

Alro Slatina also won the appeal against the force majeure measure, and the case was sent for retrial, according to Fondul Proprietatea.

The court also admitted the appeal made by Hidroelectrica’s judicial administrator Euro Insol against a decision whereby the challenge against the receivables table was admitted.

Euro Insol was reinstated the judicial administrator of Romania’s Hidroelectrica, after the Bucharest Court of Appeal decided the company’s re-entry insolvency.
